    I have the same question. I got a 2011 DB long bed and I am looking to put a 3 inch lift kit on. I have read alot of threads but I am still not sure which way to go. This stuff is all brand new to me so i am struggling with making my decision. I was looking at the ToyTec Ultimate, or the OME. I don't do any off-roading or anything like that. My truck is my daily driver and I am not look to spend a ton of money. Any recommendation would be great.

    Lift? How much $$$ you willing so spend? I have 31's on my truck with a 2" lift from Wheeler's 5-leaf springs and Bilstein 5100's and its tight but there is no rubbing.

    i just ordered the toytec ultimate lift up to 3 in the front with 2 aal in the back on my first gen pretty pricey but i wanted an easy install and i also bought total chaos ucas good investment imo. Basically dont buy spacers save ya bills and get a real lift you'll be better off in the long run.
